karlsbadBack in the 80’s yours truly had the pleasure of studying German in Vienna. A wonderful town full of history and Kaffeehäuser.

A couple of years ago, I was invited to give a series of lectures at University of Vienna and at Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration. I spent an absolutely fabulous week with visits to Café Central, Hofburg, Vienna State Opera, Belvedere, Pratern, etc., etc. 

Afterwards, yours truly — of course — could not resist the temptation to make a stopover in Karlsbad (Karlovy Vary). If you like to walk right into a novel by Jane Austen — and your wallet isn’t too thin — it’s a highly recommendable place. Hopefully,​​ when the present pandemic is all over, I will get time off for a new visit.
